in reply to Anyone Have Perl Code for New Amazon API? [SOLVED]

Typical of Amazon, they've recently modified their product search API ..

:D Surely they have a support forum ... :)

Maybe http://search.cpan.org/~boumenot/Net-Amazon-0.60/ / Bug #71973 for Net-Amazon: Required parameters include AssociateTag will help

    Yeah, you would think they would be pretty good on support etc, but they're really awful. There's no support from Amazon themselves (unless you pay for it! ... i.e. pay for support to fix issues so you can promote their own products) ... There is a support-like forum, but most people only visit it when they have a problem, and so there are no resident experts ... Very lucky if one can get a useful response on there.

    Anyway, thx for the links. The first one is a completely separate thing ... but the second has a grain of info' which might be useful, but it's not that great, because he only refers to changing a line number, and doesn't give any code ... and my line numbers are way different to his because I've modified the file in other ways previously.

    If anyone with additional info' then I'd still be most grateful for it

    Thanks again!

      Hi,
      for me as of 5 Feb 2013 it was enough to add the key AssociateTag with the Amazon-supplied value (from https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/network/main.html) into my $request from SignedRequestSample.pl which I got from http://aws.amazon.com/code/2482 and everything worked.

      Regards,
      nobody
